[TOKYO] Tokyo shares opened higher Wednesday after three days of losses, shrugging off lower oil prices and lacklustre performances on overseas markets.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index rose 0.30 per cent, or 57.59 points, to 19,359.03 in the first few minutes of trading, while the broader Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.34 per cent, or 5.24 points, to 1,547.55.
